Birk should be traded!!

Recommended Posts

Worst snap ever!!!

Just kidding, there was a very slim chance for the Vikes at that point in the game. He's one of our most consistent and tenured veterans. Kind of felt bad for him to have a mistake like that happen when it did.

Well Vikes, there's always next year!! SKOL SKOL SKOL

Birk won't be back. Sullivan or a free agent will be snapping the ball next year.

Hopefully Robison will get more time than Edwards next year. Robison played really well.

If you want to free up some money, unload Jackson, Peterson, Sharper and the head coach. You might get enough to sign Cassel from New England.

Robison had an exceptional game as did Jared Allen.

Birk is getting to that point his performance may start to decline in coming years.

Hopefully Zygi is in a press conference right now firing Childress. I doubt it, but it would be nice.

Zygi is almost like a kid with a new Christmas toy that doesn't work right and doesn't know how to fix it.

Cassel won't be available. He'll get tagged. Besides, I really don't want to dump a bunch of money on a guy who may be a one year wonder(Derek Anderson). He wasn't all that good anyway. He played well in probably 5 games all season and his stats aren't that great. Too much risk for me. He would probably be better than what we have but not worth the money and draft picks it would cost us.

I don't know that Cassell has exactly "proven" himself. But it would be nice to see the Vikes take him and dump a bunch of money into him, and give up some draft picks, to see how he pans out.

I don't think it sat well with the NE management that Brady chose a family doctor instead of the team doctor for his surgery either.

I say Brady is out.

Who's going to throw the ball to him? Sign a free agent QB and draft one high and pick up a good possession WR and you'll be all set.

Definately keep Taylor. He is one heck of good running back and bails us out on a lot of third downs. Great compliment to Peterson.

It'll be interesting to see what the off-season brings. I'm not on ESPN so no predictions for me. grin

I would hate to see Birk go but I don't think they are planning on keeping him. He seems like a great guy, does a lot for the community and is a great player.

I am so glad you aren't the GM, that scenario is worse than the Herschel Walker deal. Forget the first 2 names you mention, fire Chili and trade T Junk for a case of footballs. But Taylor and a first round pick to a team that just gave away a better receiver to the Cowboys?? That is insane.

I think Birk played his last game as a Viking. Isn't he a UFA? Never got him an extension on his contract. Nice guy, used to see him at Joe's Sporting Goods every once in a while. Now I think he'll be moving elsewhere to finish his career unless he signs for less money and as a Pro Bowler how likely is that?

Do you think it's a reasonable idea that they should keep the veteran Birk if they have an inexperienced QB next year? Birk is the foundation of that line and probably understands the offense better than any of them. They need some sort of leader out there.

In the post game interview he admitted he screwed up. He thought that T-Jack was calling for the ball but he was just motioning to the offense to change or whatever. Hard to pin a season on him and that one play, which by the looks of things wasn't going to be the game breaker anyway at that point.

Birks chances of re-signing here are small. They would have put a deal together long ago if they had future plans for him. Sharper is another one that's played his last game for the Vikes. Good, valuable players but both will command too much $$$ and they're on the decline talent wise.

Bingo, I agree with this. Someone out there has to be able to read a defense.

      @Surface Tension @eyeguy 54    The shaver style augers are easier on drills. The blades last a lot longer as well. But the two guys I tag will give great info. I have seen eyeguys nils cut and it’s fast now that he up graded drills. Surface tension sharpens nilsblades and is the go to guy for information on the in my opinion.

      I used to have that problem with my 115 merc, since it only charged at like 10 amps.  The new suzuki is more like 60 amps, plus I hooked up the third bank on my built in charger to the cranking battery.   Haven't had a problem since.

      We are planning on getting a new roof on the cabin next year.  Old one is 20 years old. Thinking about metal.   Anyone got opinions about metal roofs, or suggestions for a reliable guy to put it on?

      Ozzie we have to learn how to fish a new lake structure cause of the zebras I guess. Fish upper quite a bit and have seen no sign of clearer water yet. How did the three way rig work out?

      I just replaced my Interstate battery for my trolling motor they last 1 year and 1 month just out of warranty. Went with a different brand this time. I would also get a separate battery for all that stuff going to the starting battery.

      yes the weeds are thick in areas but it is amazing to me that traditional weed lines are not even sprouting up in areas!!  I have a section of lake that I have been walleye fishing for the past 6 years and every year there has been a weedline to follow.  The last 2 years we have seen the zebra's become prevalent and this year no weeds in that area!  Crazy

      Actually, it makes perfect sense. The car's charging system probably can't keep up for the same reason. I know when I fire up my farm tractor, even when it doesn't take much to get it started, it can take a lot longer than one realizes to recharge the batteries to full strength. During the winter, I only use the tractor for short periods so I often have to put a charger on it after each use to be sure the batteries are up to full power.    Can have similar issues with ATVs. Winches can put a pretty heavy load on the electrical system and using them to lift a blade repeatedly will put a drain on the battery that the charging system is unable to keep up to.    Starting an engine takes a lot of power and it takes more than just a few seconds to recharge the battery afterwards.
